Do ya think it's Christmas??
I took a little geographic liberty with this shot - the house is actually in Bay Shore, though still in Islip School District...and it's just such a fabulous display, I couldn't let a little thing like town borders keep me from sharing it with y'all!

It's been kind of a crazy week, I've been remiss in posting new pictures....but this morning I got up bright and early (unintentionally!) and went around shooting at crack'a'dawn. Here's the picture that makes me happiest - my boy, who made the final leap this week to seeming 100% better from his bout with Lyme's Disease back in September...here he is at full throttle at what I call "Frisbee Field."

As a child, one of my favorite books was "From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler," about a girl who runs away from home and hides out in the art museum. I always dreamed of hiding out in the public library and getting locked in at night, all alone, to peruse the stacks in peace and solitude...

Well, well, well, just look at that shiny new section of fence. I wonder why got that new section of fence...hmmm...could it be...because my DAUGHTER drove through their fence?? YES! Sheesh. She's fine, the car is fine, the ex paid to fix the fence, no harm done, but...sheesh.
Sorry for the boring picture. But at least it has a personal story behind it.

This is actually the sky on Veteran's Day, before we turned to rain and foggy grey. It was a really lovely day...you can see we're just about at the end of our foliage season, as the leaves that are left are turning russet and soon will be gone altogether....

"How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow."
~ Elsie N. Brady, Leaves

"I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its tone is mellower, its colours are richer, and it is tinged with a little sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and its content." ~ Lin Yutang

I know I've taken this same shot before, during the summer...but I got in my car this morning to head for work, and the flag just struck me really strongly.
I have to say, I would never vote or not vote for someone based on their race or color...but the fact that an African American has been voted to the American presidency is, for me, the cherry on the top of the election outcome. It makes me SO PROUD of this country, and of the American people, that they were able to make this decision, in spite of an issue that since the beginning of our nation's history has BEEN an issue, however wrong. I hope I'm making sense :-) *I* know what I mean. I just wanted to say I'm Proud of America today...and seeing the flag waving this morning just epitomized that for me.
